“The Buddha, the Godhead, resides quite as comfortably in the circuits of a digital computer or the gears of a cycle transmission as he does at the top of a mountain or in the petals of a flower.  To think otherwise is to demean the Buddha — which is to demean oneself.”

Stained Glass

A museum or a church?  A celebration of the deep well of human creativity, or an expression of gratitude toward the mysterious universe that created us?  It is remarkable how similar such expressions tend to be — how similar the imagery of temples and the imagery of museums align.  Perhaps this image reveals an even deeper convergence of belief, a core awareness that when we as humans reach for our best heights of creativity and knowledge, we are, by this very means, paying our deepest respects to the Creative Spirit of the universe.

The Other Side of the Veil

“Sphinx”  |  Anthony Satori

There have been countless attempts throughout history to decipher, represent, and/or access the spiritual world.  Such efforts usually take the form of religion, philosophy, ritual, or artwork, and they are almost always fueled by our innate human drive to discover and/or create a door between the known world and that which exists beyond.  As can be expected, every door that has been created by man up until now has been, by necessity, inherently flawed.  The simple fact is that it is almost impossible to escape the corrupting influence of human imperfection, especially over time.  But the destination is true.  That which lies on the other side of the veil is real.  It is pure, it is powerful, and it is eminently worth pursuing.  So keep trying.  Keep seeking.  Every genuine attempt to expand our understanding of — and our connection with — the compassionate creative Spirit which pervades the universe is a gift to the future of the collective human soul.
